My aim is to express a sense of balance and harmony through my work. I hand build my pieces over a period of a few days, to allow the clay to stiffen sufficiently, before adding more coils. This slow process fosters an organic growth, allows for time to step back and observe where a piece intends to go.
For many of my outdoor sculptures I use iron and copper finishes, relishing the rich patinas that develop when exposed to the elements.
Inspiration is found in the natural world – the colours and textures of rocks, seedpods, wasp’s nests or shark eggs found on the beach.
I grew up in Austria and moved to Australia in my early twenties. In 2000 I completed a studio ceramics course at Brookvale TAFE. I have been exhibiting my work since 2007. I live and work at Clareville on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. My studio is open to the public three times a year as part of Pittwater Artists Trail (http://pittwaterartiststrail.com.au) or by appointment.
